Congratulations to mkdallas!How good does it get? Le Métier de Beauté is sponsoring a giveaway contest for Best Things in Beauty readers to celebrate Neiman Marcus' Beauty Week. Here's the scoop.
You know that Beauty Week starts Thursday, September 8 (Fashion's Night Out), and runs through September 18. Pre-sale is "on," meaning you can order from your wish list now. To give you a special incentive to check out Le Métier de Beauté's new skin care, eye and lip Kaleidoscopes, and basically everything at one of my all-time favorite beauty counters, Le Métier de Beauté will award one amazing new product to the lucky winner of this contest: a Revive Eye Concentrate ($175).
Revive Eye Concentrate with with Syntoc Actif + HydrationPlus Complexe is an innovative eye treatment that repairs and plumps the delicate skin around the eyes. Using the same exclusive Syntoc Actif delivery system, it offers these key ingredients.
- Hesperidin Methyl Chalcone, which decreases capillary permeability to reduce edema (water retention)
- A dipeptide to improve lymphatic circulation to further reduce edema;
- Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide, a regenerating peptide to improve elasticity and strengthen the skin around the eyes; can slow or inhibit glycation and inflammatory damage
It gets better. Remember when I started a movement to bring back Artemis Liquid Eyeliner, one of the prettiest midnight navy liners I have ever used? The gift with purchase at Neiman Marcus for Beauty Week is none other than...an Artemis Liquid Eyeliner! If you don't recognize it, click on this link. Spend $125 at Neiman Marcus with Le Métier de Beauté, and you'll receive the Beauty Week tote, filled with samples, and an Artemis Liquid Eyeliner.
To enter the giveaway contest, you must make a Le Métier de Beauté purchase of any amount between now and September 18, and you need to comment here, letting us know what you purchased (please list at least one of your goodies, but we'd love to know all the details). Save your receipt because we will need to verify your purchase on September 19, and we may need information from the receipt.
Anyone whose purchases $100 or more in the beauty department (in-store or online) will receive the Neiman Marcus gift. Anyone who purchases $125 or more with Le Métier de Beauté at Neiman Marcus will receive the Artemis Liquid Eyeliner (get in line behind me). In addition, we'll have one lucky contest winner here who will receive a Revive Eye Concentrate (no minimum purchase to enter). I'm excited for you!
Here is the fine print about the contest. You must make a Le Métier de Beauté purchase for Beauty Week (or during and for pre-sale before September 8) at Neiman Marcus and leave a comment on this feature (as explained above). After you comment here, feel free to send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to identify your comment. You can never be too careful about sharing an e-mail address you care about on a blog, so feel free to follow this step (an alternative is to code your e-mail, e.g., myname at gmail dot com, in your comment).
If you have made that purchase, you can earn extra entries. Follow this blog (through an e-mail subscription or though one of the many Google readers - see sidebar at right) to earn a second entry. You don't have to follow to enter. I want everyone to have a chance, but I also want to reward my followers.
You can earn a third entry by tweeting this contest. Just make sure to include "@BTiBeauty" and @MetierBeaute" (without the quotes) in your tweet and mention the giveaway. I will tweet the contest soon, and you can simply retweet it to earn that second entry. Only one tweet will be counted as an entry.
The deadline for entries will be Sunday, September 18, when Neiman Marcus closes. The next day, I will use a random number generator (random.org) to select the winner from those who commented (counting the extra entries too). I will e-mail the winner on Sunday. The winner will have 48 hours to reply to my message and provide receipt information and a shipping address in the United States. (After 48 hours, the prize will be forfeited, and another winner will be selected. Make sure to check your e-mail - and look in your spam folder - when the contest ends.) We will verify the winner's purchase with Neiman Marcus, and Le Métier de Beauté will send out the Revive Eye Concentrate.
